Mobile Educational Trailers in Jordan's Azraq Refugee Camp
Organized by: Stephanie Leutert
Yale's Strategic Management of Non-Profits Class at the School of Management partnered with Yale's Jackson Institute to raise funds to help Syrian refugees access opportunity.
There are over 4.1 million Syrian refugees displaced in countries within the Middle East. Many live in small camps like the one in Azraq, Jordan, home to 20,000 refugees. As a smaller camp, Azraq refugees have not received as much aid from international donors and do not have enough mobile trailers (which double as classrooms) to support full time education for all youth.
Our Mobile Educational Trailer campaign has raised $17,000 toward three trailers for students in the Azraq camp in collaboration with Relief International. This education space will be open to both girls and boys, but is especially important for girls who are often not allowed to leave their homes after dark.
After speaking with aid workers on the ground, we are hoping to raise another $1,000 to equip the trailers before winter begins.
All these funds will be gathered by Yale University Global Affairs Students at the Jackson Insitute and transferred upon success of the campaign to a Relief International education operation in the Azraq camp. The donation will be monitored, and verification of the mobile classroom installation will be sent in accordance with a memorandum of understanding.
